From the Garrett library. From the dawn of time the story of gold has been one of wealth, adventure and greed.
In the Americas the tale begins long before the first voyage of Columbus with the intricate and impressive workmanship of native artisans.
In more modern times the story includes lore of the fabled Conquistadors, 49ers and the Klondike.
Truly, it was gold that stimulated discovery of America, and lust for the precious metal pushed the frontier westward across the United States.
This book tells that dramatic saga with colorful vignettes that present a vivid account of the development of our nation and other countries of the New World.
Filled with adventure, excitement and dynamic personalities Gold of the Americas is Americana at its best.
